Guinness Margaritas

Didja know that St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner?   Well. it is.  So let's talk about Guinness.  I'm not a huge fan of Guinness.  While I love stout beer, I realized after completing my local bar's 250-beer beer club that I prefer to drink the stronger stouts.

However, I do love a good margarita.  They are up there on my list of things to drink because tequila is my friend.  At least it is most of the time.  Right now we're on good terms but we have a love/hate relationship.

I was intrigued with the idea of combining Guinness with a margarita.  Not only is it festive for St. Pat's, but it gives me another excuse to drink a margarita.  I can't turn that down, now can I?  This was pretty much the best decision of my week, and the week's not even over yet!  I seriously was in love at first sip.  I will take that second mason jar now please and thank you.

Oh, and I don't have any "in progress" photos of this recipe like I usually do.  That is because of all the kitchen items that I don't own, one of them happens to be a pitcher.  This led to me having to mix this all together in a bowl.  All the bowl-shame is upon me!  Anyhow, I figured I'd spare you all that pretty photograph.  But I think it was all worth it in the end!
